The whole world is a classroom
We all know that learning can take place anywhere, and at our academy it really does.
We have fantastic outdoor facilities, including a field, a multi-use games area and woodland. Here children learn about plants and animals, as well as building dens and making fires. Team activities develop their confidence and self-esteem and understanding of the local environmental, including British wildlife.
Our dedicated dance, drama and music space gives children pride in their creative pursuits. While frequent educational trips teach children about their local area.
For our youngest learners, we have additionally created an Early Years village which provides a specialist learning environment for children under five.
We believe that pupils come first and that all pupils should have an active role in the way their academy is led. Through pupil parliament and pupil voice, our students help create the academy they want. Our pupil voice enables every pupil to influence the aspects of academy life that are important to them, for example, by helping in re-designing the playground area and by participating in the interview process for key staff members. Within pupil parliament, pupils learn to take responsibility and manage money, for example by having a budget for play equipment. Pupil parliament promotes leadership opportunities and develops essential communication, organisation and debating skills. We also participate in learning and business ambassadors to engage our pupils with a range of businesses and career opportunities, helping pupils prepare for a successful future.
